    Pff, your thinking too small.

    With Sonic Forces, fans can now play as the greatest Sonic fan character of all time.

    I'm going to be really pissed if Sega somehow manages to screw these two games up...

    I heard the latter is pretty bad from early impressions.

    Does anyone even need to link the Sonic Cycle meme at this point?

    I tried looking up these early impressions to see what your talking about, but it from what I could find, it looks it's only one article/guy hating the game, most of the other early impressions seem to think the game is pretty great, if somewhat flawed (or at least find it to be ok).

    Ah, of course the one early impression I see happens to be the odd one out. Glad to hear at least, I always like "love letter to fans" games, even if I'm not necessarily a part of the fanbase.

    Well, it finally happened. After a long seven month hiatus filled with lots of speculation by fans (even though it started becoming pretty clear what had happened), Sega has officially announced that they are parting ways with Archie Comics, and that Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog comic has been cancelled. And so after 24 years, the longest running American comic to have never been relaunched or renumbered ends.

    http://www.cbr.com/sonic-the-hedgehog-archie-comics/

    I got to admit, I'm actually really depressed about this. The Sonic comics were some of my first comics books I read while growing up as a kid, and even though the quality of the book was pretty often scattershot back then, I still have a lot of fond childhood memories of reading the book as a kid. I never thought the book would last long enough for me to get back into it several years later, even having two crossovers with Archie's Mega Man comic (which has sadly been cancelled for a long time now) and managing to survive by going through a reboot after losing most of their original characters and storylines thanks to a lawsuit by former writer Ken Penders.

    But really, the worst part of about all this is that the comic ended in the absolute worst way a comic could end: getting cancelled in the middle of an unfinished story arc (well ok, it was a flashback recap of the first four Sonic games on the Genesis plus CD, and the years long adaptation of Unleashed had just ended, but the point still stands), with many storylines and sub-plots never being resolved. Especially disappointing was that Archie was releasing a three part Sonic mini-series with a Classic Sonic art-style, but thanks to the cancellation part three will never be released (though the artist for the book has actually done some work with Sega, he was the one who did the art and animation for the pre-order trailer for Sonic Mania.

    So in other words, RIP Sonic comics. Thanks for screwing everything up Ken Penders and Archie. Thanks a bunch.

    So more information has come up online explaining why Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric was such a complete disaster.

    http://www.tssznews.com/2017/07/11/tons-of-new-info-on-sonic-boom-rise-of-lyric-development-found/

    I find all this stuff fascinating. I mean, I honestly don't believe that Rise of Lyric would ever have been good (there is still no explanation for why the combat sucks) and even without the glitches, it looks like it would have just been another crappy, repetitive, bland beat-em-up game, but I find it amazing how so much incompetence and meddling ended up turning what could have been just another forgettable mediocre Sonic spin-off into one of the worst games of the 2010's.

    Holy shit you guys, this gameplay looks incredible, Infinite looks like he'll be the toughest Sonic foe yet, and the graphics are amazing. This trailer makes Sonic Mania look like nothing.

    On a note unrelated to Sonic Mania, I got Sonic 2 and 3 from the Steam Summer Sale a while ago. I've been playing Sonic 3 for the most part and I really like it, but I've had to rethink how I play it. Before, I was stressing out about finding all the Chaos Emeralds by the end of the game and I wasn't enjoying it very much. Since then, I rethought my approach. I doubt most people got all of them on their first time through; they replayed it and got better. I'm going to just relax and enjoy this first run and then try again with some other characters so I can get familiar with the level design.
